Belgium boss Marc Wilmots has advised Fellaini to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.
Wilmots is frustrated that the towering midfielder has made just one premier league start and a total of six league appearances under Louis Van Gaal this season.
In order to have 28 years old Fellaini in top form for next summer’s European Championships, Wilmots suggest it would be best for Fellaini to leave Old Trafford in a bid to get regular football prior to the UEFA Tournament.
Fellaini has so far impressed in his substitutes appearances this season, He came on in the second half when United were out-played and out-scored by the Gunners to instill balance in the Midfield; thereby cutting off Arsenal free flowing attack. In the UEFA Champions league play offs, Fellaini came on as a substitute and scored an injury time goal to give United a breathing space and ensured the the Red Devil’s play the return leg with a two goal advantage.
Fellaini moved from Standard Liege to Everton where he made 141 appearances, scoring 25 goals in total in a 5 years spell before moving to United to re-unite with former coach David Moyes in 2013. He has featured for the Red Devils 49 times; scoring 6 goals in total.
Wilmots have a point but he should know that Fellaini would get his chances at United, he is the national team coach and cannot play all his players at the same time, Fellaini is very much in Van Gaal’s plans, its just a matter of time before he would break into the main team.
